The vandalism in progress page is a reporting function for Wookieepedians who notice acts of ongoing or repeated vandalism. For those familiar with Wikipedia, this page and the corresponding talk page will serve as a simplified version of the AIV page.

How to report:Edit

  • For first-time vandals, consider putting one of the warning templates on the user's talk page before reporting them.
  • Please add vandal reports under the appropriate heading, "Current IP alerts" or "Current RU alerts," in the following format:
===Current date=== <br />
#{{Vandal|"IP or username (excluding quotes)"}} Followed by a description of the act(s) of vandalism, and your signature (by typing ~~~~). <br />
#*Subsequent details should be added under the initial report in this form.

Always preview the page before submitting your report to avoid problems with formatting.

Listings on this page will be removed periodically.

  1. All Things Animated (talkcontribsdeleted contribslogsabuse logblockhardblockblock log): As silly as it is, this user has been edit-warring Ezra Bridger's hair color, despite a 3RR warning, a written request, and a vandalism warning. - Cwedin(talk) 23:56, March 20, 2017 (UTC)
    • Technically speaking, he hasn't actually committed a 3RR violation since his edit-warring on this article began last month. A 3RR violation requires that someone performs more than three back-and-forth reversions in 24 hours or less. Either by tact or sheer luck, he's never actually done more than three within any 24-hour span, though you could certainly make the case that he's violating the spirit of the rule. I would be careful to chalk up his editing to vandalism, because he might actually believe what he's adding is correct and not understand that we go by what source material tells us. Remember, never attribute to bad faith what might just be sheer stupidity. This is what I would suggest: Take a moment to write him a personal message explaining why what he's adding is wrong and how and why he's committing violations of our policies. Then he has no excuse not to abide by them. If he continues at that point, I'll be happy to block him. Toprawa and Ralltiir (talk) 00:08, March 21, 2017 (UTC)
      • Ah, you're right, I did jump on that 3RR too hastily. Guess it's time for me to re-read some policies! Anyway, I don't like calling these edits "vandalism" either, but through ignorance or disregard, this editor has continued despite warnings, and I did't know what else to call it (which is why I came here). Regardless, I'll take your advice and hope this clears up! - Cwedin(talk) 00:47, March 21, 2017 (UTC)
